Movie Quote of the Day – Save the Last Dance, 2001 (dir. Thomas Carter)


Chenille: You and Derek act like it don’t bother people to see you together. Like it don’t hurt people to see.
Sara: Well, we like each other. What is the big damn deal? It’s me and him, not us and other people.
Chenille: Black people, Sara. Black women. Derek’s about something. He’s smart. He’s motivated. He’s for real. He’s not gonna make babies and not take care of them, or run the streets messing up his life. He’s gonna make something of himself. And here you come — white, so you gotta be right — and take one of the few decent men we have left after jail, drugs and drive-by. That is what Nikki meant about you up in our world.
Sara: There’s only one world, Chenille.
Chenille: That’s what they teach you. We know different.
